Prototypes, residential treatment program in Pomona, California, is part of the Second Chance Women’s Re-entry Court program, one of the first in the U.S. to focus on women. It offers a cost-saving alternative to prison for women who plead guilty to non-violent crimes and volunteer for treatment. Of the 297 women who have been through the court since 2007, 100 have graduated, and only 35 have been returned to state prison.
